I was just thinking of the many talented French Canadians in the league, and thought it would kind of be fun to put together a lineup of the best Quebec-born players. I'm quite tired and I can't think of the entire lineup off the top of my head, but if you have some time on your hands go ahead try it... it would be interesting to read the lineups that people come up with.
Sorry, but what does this have to do with the Montreal Canadiens again?
"All Quebec team"?
Well Montreal is in Quebec, so the "Montreal" part.
And people in Quebec are also Canadiens, so the "Canadiens" part.
And, for the original topic. It has already been discussed that for the next World Championship in Canada all Team Canada games are going to be played in the Martitimes, so Quebec City will not draw as much attendance. I beleive it would be interesting to make a Quebec team to play in Quebec City.
umm im sorry I don't go on these boards very often, therefore I do not catch every single thread about things, I just thought it would be fun/interesting to do.
and french canadians or quebec born players, it doesnt matter. both.
and no, i do not wish to talk about the politics of it, it will never happen and nor do I want it to happen....
and lastly, Guy Caballero - there is an OFF TOPIC (O.T) at the beginning of the thread...not every single thread on this board has to be about the Canadiens specifically....
Some posters on this board, especially "veterans", should cut some more slack for non-experienced posters..no need to get so pissed off...i just thought it would be something fun to do. My apologies if it has already been done before
if you add the names that missed on that list + those ones , that makes a very good team . Defensive is not the best one , but it seems that there are very good players that are comming soon . I hope that Carles will be one of them .
Yeah lots of francophone names in western Canada and in the US... just think Bill Guerin, from the top of my head. Can't find a guy that's more american through and through than this one...
Do a bit more research before throwing names like that... no big deal but it will spare us some unnecessary arguing.
And +1 for the good tending, good forwards, sucky defense paraphrasing.
Yeah, I can understand Bouillon, since although he was born in NYC he spent a lot of his life in the province of Quebec. To me, when you consider Bouillon's ethnicity and upbringing, he definitely counts as a French Canadian (I'm guessing he holds dual citizenship), unlike someone like Gilbert Brule, who was born in Edmonton and raised in Vancouver. Just because he has a "French name" doesn't make him a Quebecer.
Also, I apologize if I mixed up the terms "French Canadian" and "Quebecer" and "Quebecois"; as an American, I get confused as to their true meaning. Sorry.
